  • 2 garlic cloves

  • Lightly toast pine nuts until golden in a dry skillet or pan over medium heat.
  • Remove from pan and allow to cool.
  • In a food processor or blender, combine the basil leaves, pine nuts, garlic, olive oil and parmesan cheese and process for a couple of minutes until a paste forms.
  • Do not over-process into a puree, as we want to retain some texture.
  • Season to taste.
  • Depending on the use you're giving it, you may need to thin it out with a tablespoon or so of water.
